Dare,

The hardware and software on your configuration seems to be coming in at
78% of IBM list pricing.  I don't think you can do much better on new
equipment through regular retail channels, although some of IBM's
special developer programs might do better.

In terms of the configuration, it doesn't look bad for a light-duty
development box.  You'll need to decide whether 17.5 GB is enough
storage for you.  If it were mine, I would probably want to include a
single license of Client Access and would consider going with the
three-year prepaid software subscription.  Personally, I would rather
pay it up front and not worry about it later.  I would also echo the
previous post questioning why you would want both Query/400 and the SQL
Tools.

Regards,
Andy Nolen-Parkhouse
